Moxie Fab House Hold Items Challenge

I love Fall! Even though it's 86 degrees on this fine Mid September day, fall is showing it's colors!!! One of our Birch trees has streams of yellow leaves intermixed with the dark green.. (Love that color combo), and our Apples are almost ripe! Yeah!!!!!



Above is my entry for this weeks Hero Arts color challenge #3, as well as the Moxie Fab Household Items Challenge.

Now, here's the deal. I don't have very many 'household' item related embellies or stamps except for the Sparkle Clear 'tea for two' set from Hero Arts. So, we will have to settle for a paper pieced teacup and spoon and a teabag! I am looking forward to the day when I can just sit with a cup of tea and relax... Unfortunately, that day won't arrive until mid November - and most likely it will include snow!

By the way... I used 10 stamps on this card! I managed to pick up the New HA Brocade Cling when I was in Boise last week.. What an awesome stamp... I used it on the chipboard...

Thanks for Looking!!

Supplies:
HA Stamps: CL137 Small Variety Alpha, CG102 Antique Brocade Cling (stamped on circle chipboard), HA Sparkle Clear Tea for 2 (teacup, spoon, teabag), JS153 Month September (leaf)...

Other supplies: Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy PP; Brocade PP (unknown); Kraft & Chocolate Chip CS, ribbon, and linen thread all from SU; Autumn Leaves button; SU Top Note Die; Basic Grey naked circle chipboard; Ranger Distress Vintage Photo Ink; Old Olive SU Ink, Stazon Olive Green & Timber Brown.

Well... that is a beautiful card! Love the vintage feel and all the beautiful layers. I could not spot the 10 stamps. I felt like it was one of those games where you find the 10 differences. :)

this came out great!

there is something about tea that just says relax. coffee says amp me up. tea says relax. there are times when I need both effects.

Andi, this is totally Fall fantastic! I am imagining trees with leaves turning, cool crisp air, and a hot cuppa to warm by and inspire. YOUR card has me picturing ALL that, but for while, I will have to just imagine it since we are having weather like you. Its hot and supposed to get hotter......."they" say 90's in a couple of days, which means mid 90's and up! Sigh. Thank you though for giving me a way to escape to my favorite season of the year in my mind! :>:>
